Sister Rosemary Becker OSB

“I knew my mom was praying for me to have a vocation because she thought I was going to the dogs,” Sr. Rosemary (Aileen) says. “I did have a lot of boyfriends. But I always thought, this one’s okay, this one’s okay, this one’s okay. That didn’t mean I wanted to marry any of them."

Sister Rosemary began mulling over the question of her vocation after high school. Although it had been in the back of her mind as a young girl, she hadn’t considered it seriously in years. Her brother asked her if she was going to enter.

“I said, I think I will. He said, I’ll see you in 6 weeks. I thought to myself, 'I’m going to make it 7 weeks if it kills me.'”

Sr. Rosemary chuckles. She’s lasted a whole lot more than 7 weeks!

“It’s been a good life. I’ve become the person I was meant to be, as an educator and now a sacristan. I love this community and welcome all to come see.”
